I am afraid you need to be more explicit because I do not really 
understand. What is blurry here? I see rather /crisp/ minerals in a 
random pattern. Maybe I should post the code? you could test it better I

I truly cannot imagine what you can gain by such a render. What are you 
looking for exactly? If I do what you say, you will see a bunch of 
coloured pixels, or am I thinking in the wrong direction?
